Spring 2010 - ÇG IE 398 Lecture 7 2 types of costs a first classification: explicit   costs : out-of-pocket costs involving an actual  transfer of funds  (eg. payrol costs, purchasing costs etc.) implicit   costs : no funds change hand  (eg. depreciation,  cost of reduced productivity, goodwill loss etc.) implicit costs that are relevant to OR decisions are called  intangible costs (eg. depreciation is not relevant to decision  making but goodwill cost is)   implicit costs that are shown in the balance sheet are also  known as  intangible costs from an accounting point of  view , but these are not relevant to OR  (eg. depreciation or  intangible asset value reduction concerning reserves for bad debts  or acquired assets that exceed purchase cost)

Spring 2010 - ÇG IE 398 Lecture 7 3 a second classification accounting costs  as summarised in balance sheets  and income statements direct costs  which can be variable (ie.changing with the  level of output) or fixed  (eg. depreciation of a machine that is  dedicated to a certain product remains independent of output and is  fixed) indirect costs  or  overheads  which are essentially  joint   costs  of production; overhead can change with output also,   but it will remain fixed over wide intervals   economic costs  are  opportunity   costs  (or  shadow   prices ) ie. the implicit cost of a resource calculated as  forgone benefits from the best alternative activity  that the resource could have been used for variable costs  that change in the short-run fixed costs  that change only in the long-run

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
